An Obama Discourtesy

Jimmy Carter holds the distinction of being only one of four men on this planet who once was president of the United States of America. After leaving the office of president, he was the only one of those four men who did not seek to enrich himself by seeking positions in the corporate world which offer millions in exchange for using the name of a former president. He devoted himself to the cause of peace a rather unusual desire on the part of a former president. In his post presidency, Carter has been consulted by Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and another George Bush, but no call has ever come from the current arrogant Barack Obama. Carter is aware that his ideas on peace in the Middle East are not popular with the Israel lobby and many members of Congress because he worked for a peace in the Middle East that respected the rights of both Israel and Palestinians.

It might be of interest to Barack Obama that he was the last US president who actually brought Palestinians and Arabs together in a peace accord. The Camp David accord ensured that both Arab and Israel views were respected. Barack Obama has allowed Israel to disrespect Arab needs and in the process simply made America more disrespected in the Middle East.

It is rather tragic when a former president of this nation has to write: “I have felt that my communications are probably monitored. And, when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write the letter myself, put it in the Post Office and mail it because I believe if I send an email, it will be monitored.”
